The Texans have never taken a chance on someone with character issues this bad. The worst was Travis Henry, but he didn't have the history when he was signed.

I second that. Curry has been such a disappointment. He had a ton of more potential then McClain as well

Default Rolando McClain - A possible fit at MLB?

It looks like he's on the trading block. In spite of his past issues, would you make a run at him? What would you give up to trade for him, or would you take a chance you could sign him if Oakland truely does release him?

Default Re: Rolando McClain - A possible fit at MLB?

On January 27, 2011, a vehicle being driven by Rolando McClain was shot at while McClain was in his hometown of Decatur, Alabama. No one was hurt and police are unsure if the shooter knew that the car belonged to McClain. He later fired multiple shots at the police.

On January 8, 2013 McClain was arrested by Decatur Police in Morgan County after an officer pulled him over for a window tint violation. McClain provided the officer with a false name and he was arrested and booked into the Decatur City Jail. McClain bonded out of jail later that day.

Doesn't sounds like uncle Bob's kind of guy. But, who knows.

This is a guy who allegedly assaulted a guy, held a gun to the man's head, and then fired beside the man's ear.

Here was his picture when getting apprehended...



I don't use this word often, but Rolando McClain is a thug. I don't want him affiliated with this team in any capacity.

He has not only been a bad guy, but is not a good NFL player, not terrible but good enough to justify his other baggage.

Sure, if you're casting a reality show based on "The Longest Yard".

As a Raider fan, I can only hope that some team is stupid enough to give up something for the lazy pos known as SloRo. I would prefer it not be Houston, but if that's what it takes to get him out of Oakland, so be it.

In other news, Lechler is reportedly headed to Houston to speak with the Texans.

Default Rolando McClain

He's to be put on waivers.....which means he's still under his rookie contract(8th overall). If he passes waivers, and his off field issues, would you guys take him?

At 23 years old i would.

Retiring at 23 sounds par for the course for a quitter. Aren't you glad you weren't one of those saying "bring him in"?
